>The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) Postdoctoral Scholars
>Program at JPL invites applicants to apply for a post-doctoral research
>position at JPL in the area of atmospheric chemical kinetics and
> The research will involve planning, executing and analyzing laboratory
>experiments on gas phase reactions of importance in Earth's atmosphere.
>Specific projects include kinetics and spectroscopy studies of intermediates
>involved in coupled HOx-NOx reactions such as OH + NO2, OH + HNO3, etc. and
>studies of the reactions of HO2 with organic peroxy radicals. The
>experimental techniques that are employed included laser
>photolysis/laser-induced fluorescence, near-infrared TDL kinetic
>spectroscopy, mid-infrared cavity ringdown spectroscopy and near-infrared
>action spectroscopy. Several projects involve collaboration with research
>groups at the California Institute of Technology.
> Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in chemistry, physics or applied
>physics with a strong background in laser techniques. Experience in
>atmospheric chemistry is highly desirable. The appointment is contingent
>upon evidence of completion of a Ph.D.
> The annual starting salary for a recent Ph.D. is approximately
>US$48,500 and can vary somewhat according to the applicant's qualifications.
> Postdoctoral scholars positiions are awarded for a 1-year period.
>Appointments may be renewed in 1-year increments for a maximum addition of 2
>years. The appointment is expected to begin in the spring of 2004.
> Please send a letter describing your research interests, a curriculum
>vitae, and a list of three references (with telephone numbers and postal and
>e-mail addresses) to Dr. Stanley P. Sander, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, MS
